Detroit isn't done retooling their offensive line.

In a matter of minutes the Detroit Lions saw Riley Reiff go to the Vikings, Larry Warford head to New Orleans and DeAndre Levy get dropped completely.

The Lions may have added Ricky Wagner to their offensive line, but they don't appear to be done retooling their front five. According to Ian Rapoport, the Lions will be the first team to meet with T.J. Lang:

This is another surprise for Detroit, but it's a sign that the Lions are less than satisfied with Laken Tomlinson, who is projected to be the Lions’ starting right guard with Warford gone.

Lang, 29, is a former Pro Bowl talent that has dealt with minor injuries over the past few years. In total, he has played 94 games as a starter for the Packers.

If the Lions sign Lang, it will further prove Bob Quinn’s serious commitment to improving the offensive line. Quinn drafted three linemen with his first five draft picks and now could be adding two significant pieces in free agency.
